The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium hosted its eighth annual Conservation Cup, Monday, Oct. 28 at Mayacoo Lakes. The event included a luncheon, putting contest, cocktail party and awards presentation.

Participants swung for science as funds raised will support the Science Center’s mission of opening every mind to science. 

“This is a hole-in-one event for us every year,” said Kate Arrizza, Science Center CEO. “We are grateful for our generous sponsors and participants who support us each year and look forward to many more.”

Winners of this year’s Conservation Cup for men was Scott Butler and Robbie Wight, and women’s low net winners were Jessica Shapiro and Lauren King.

Heath Randolph served as chairman of the event along with co-chairpersons Scott Butler, Mack Perry, Cari Rentas, Carolyn Sasso and Jeff Smith. 

The Science Center features more than 100 hands-on educational exhibits, a digital planetarium and the 18-hole Conservation Course – an outdoor putting course with science-focused education stations. 

The newest addition includes the $2.5 million permanent exhibit “Journey Through the Human Brain” and features the most advanced neuroscience research and technology in the world.
